Mikołaj, the Polish Tatra Sheepdog puppy has past the 4 month mark, and is 50 lbs.  Whenever I take him with me shopping, peopel have to ask what he is.

I made some clip-art of a tomato seedling.  PNG format, transparent background, variety of sizes, released into the public domain. Download them from my clip art site here: http://fithfath.com/images/?p=851

The eight surviving chicks from McMurrays are doing well.  They’re eating a variety of ground grains and have transitioned well to fresh fruits and veggies.

Looks like we have 5 Black Jersey Giants (strait run), 1 Cuckoo Marans (male), 1 dark Brahma (female), and 1 “mystery” chick (I hope it’s one of the Easter Eggers, but it could be a ‘packing peanut’).  The ‘Mystery’ chick is the orange-ish one on the left in the photo below (the 3 blacks are the Jerseys and the Dark Brahma is at the top-most in the photo)

The replacement chicks are expected tomorrow.  At least the weather is not as brutal as last time  (see original story here: http://fithfath.com/farm/2011/02/20/the-season-for-chicks/.

  1. Can you tell me where you got your polish tatra. I have been searching for breeders in the US. I have only found one with a long waiting list.
